A Florida father who was trying to teach his 12-year-old daughter about gun safety ended up shooting her in the arm, police said.
The incident took place on Sunday night at a home in Davie, Florida, CBS Miami reported.
The dad was trying to show his daughter how to draw a gun when the firearm went off, police said, according to NBC Miami.
The girl's injuries were not life-threatening.
A neighbor, who said she came outside when she heard the gunshot, described what she saw to CBS Miami.
"There was blood running down her leg," Kara Perez said. "She had white shorts on, so you could tell her whole front and side were full of blood."
Davie Police Sgt. Pablo Castaneda told The Huffington Post that, after interviewing the girl and her father separately, authorities believe the shooting was an accident. However, he said Child Protective Services is involved and the investigation is ongoing.
"There's no arrest and we're not releasing names at this point," Castaneda said.
